SUICIDE FOREST Announces Debut Self-Titled LP + Premieres “Kingdom of Solitude” via NoCleanSinging
Seeking to promote self-destruction and nihilism, Arizona-based black metal extremist SUICIDE FOREST has premiered its first single, “Kingdom of Solitude,” from the band’s debut self-titled LP via NoCleanSinging.com.
With driving rhythms and ethereal keyboard accents, NoCleanSinging says the scathing track is “propelled by a surging physicality that brings the pain within it to life, and while this song is compulsively vibrant, it’s also mystical and haunting.”
Suicide Forest was engineered by Frank Blair, mixed and produced by A. Kruger, and mastered by the illustrious Collin Jordan (Nachtmystium, Cough, Eyehategod), with additional production handled by Chris Wisco (Broken Hope, Origin, Novembers Doom). Cover art was drawn by Lariyah Haze of Haze Designs.
SUICIDE FOREST is the brainchild of 23-year-old multi-instrumentalist Austin Kruger, who self-released a trio of demos between July 2016 and July 2017: Emptiness, Indifference, and Apathy. Taking its name from Aokigahara, a 35-square kilometer forest in Japan known for being one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide, SUICIDE FOREST‘s music reflects the dour nature of the forest. Follow its trail deep into the woods, and join with the dead already residing there…
